making fig pickin' gizmos
The fruit pickers at my local Home Despot are very unsuitable for picking figs--probably the person who invented them had larger, harder fruits in mind like apples. Using one of them on a fig would just tear it up if it was big enough for it to grab in the first place.
So for harvesting the higher up figs on your trees, what do you all use? (before anybody says ladder or cherry picker, no I am not keen to try a ladder and I do not have access to a cherry picker.)
If you could post a pic of your fig picking device I would greatly appreciate it!
